I’ve been having a serious identity crisis lately. I started blogging as a parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, and I thought I needed to keep that part of my life separate for some reason. So I created Muddy Monkeys (www.muddymonkeys.me).
But as I’ve been writing more and more, I’ve found myself feeling schizophrenic. The simple fact is that family life is family life, even mixed in with additional challenges. And so, after some soul searching, I’ve decided to integrate my life so that my experience is as authentic as possible. There’s no reason to compartmentalize who I am or who my family is. We just are.
So I will no longer write under Muddy Monkeys but follow my original path — Mommy Evolution (www.thejennyevolution.com) because we never stop evolving as parents or as people.
